"I'm surprised more things hadn't come out sooner," Weiner said Tuesday. "Things aren't that much different than they were yesterday."
"I said there were more things out there," he continued. "We went through this process and worked through some of these challenges and we put it behind us."
Weiner said he was not dropping out of the race for City Hall yesterday and he reiterated that statement today:
A relaxed Anthony Weiner strolled out of his Gramercy Park apartment Wednesday and said that voters are more interested in jobs and affordable housing than the new pics of his private parts.
A day after his second sexting scandal in two years hit the headlines, Weiner said he planned to spend the day catching up on phone calls, working on his new policy book and brushing up on the issues for an evening candidates forum.
When asked about how the latest revelations are affecting him, he said, “I'm fine. I've got an amazing wife and child upstairs. I've got a comfortable life.”
He said that those calling for him to quit the mayoral race never wanted him in.
“A lot of the same people who weren't crazy about me running in the first place now want me to get out, including my opponents,” the former Democratic congressman said.
Despite the latest cringe-fest, Weiner said he expects the “conversation” among voters to stay on moving the city forward.
“This is about the city and about the aspirations of people to make things better,” he said.
